Frostmourne is gone

Anyone noticed that the statue in the middle of Dalaran is gone? It was holding the last pieces of Frostmourn remaining. Now it is only a fountain.

Did Blizzard change plans for lore?

EDIT: Omg so tired sorry for the mistake in the weapon name. Terrible T.T

I think there was an Ask CDev that said someone stole the shards of Frostmourne.

Can you say if it was Sylvanas? There was another Q&A or lore book where it was saying the dark lady picked up Frostmourne shards.

Personally, if someone stole these, I would call Dreadlords.

It's still there on my server.

That's just part of the statue. Note how it's made of gold.

Ask CDev #1:
Q: What happened to Frostmourne after it was shattered?
A:
While this is a closely guarded secret, we'll trust you to be discreet: no one knows where the remnants of Frostmourne are now.

The remnants of Frostmourne were not taken by Sylvanas. When she reached the Frozen Throne (in Edge of Night), she found the discarded pieces of Arthas's armor, but his body and the shards of Frostmourne had already been removed.

At BlizzCon 2011, Dave Kosak confirmed that Frostmourne was gone by the time Sylvanas got there, and Chris Metzen said "someone smart" put the pieces of it "somewhere safe" to keep it from being reforged.

This was almost certainly Tirion - he was the first one with access to them, and he's not stupid enough to leave something that dangerous behind. He may have had the Argent Crusade, Ebon Blade and/or Kirin Tor hide the pieces away in secure locations.

I would actually lean more towards Kel'thuzad doing it, if he could. He's like Warcraft's version of Evil Merlin. He probably hid the sword away should events ever lead to the Lich King needing it again.

Tirion's strength isn't intelligence. He wracked his brain in Blood and Honor because of his inability to do the intellectually smart thing and sacrifice Eitrigg for the sake of his family.

The sword in the statue obviously isn't Frostmourne. No way in hell would someone take a blade that is believed to be evil incarnate and sentient and just leave it hanging in a public place like that.

Obviously someone had to have taken them, but they never told anyone or let it known they had taken them so yes no one knows where the shards are, except the obvious person who had to have taken them away from ICC.

We'll never know until it is brought up again, most likely in a filler instance of raid like the endless Trolls

The question is, who DOES have the fragments of Frostmourne. We know it is not Sylvanas, obviously, but the way they answered the question is incredibly vague and could have several potential candidates for the "very smart" person.

1. Tirion - The first most obvious candidate. It's highly probable that after the fight against the Lich King and Bolvar taking on the Helm of Damnation, he secured the fragments of Frostmourne and now has them someplace safe.

2. Darion Mograine - The second most obvious candidate. Same reason as Tirion.

3. Mal'Ganis - This would be interesting indeed if Mal'Ganis were the one to have gotten hold of the fragments. He was in Northrend commanding the forces of the Scarlet Onslaught under disguise and, while we did send him back to the Nathrezim Homeworld, we've no honest idea how long it would take him to recover, especially since we didn't outright kill him and thus force him to reform over a long period of time. The only question, is how he would have gotten it under the watchful eyes of Tirion and Darion. To that, I say, he MAY have been shadowing us for a good portion of ICC, waiting until the right moment, say, Tirion leaving momentarily to collect himself from the loss of Bolvar and leaving the fragments behind unguarded for SECONDS. Then, he strikes, and takes them for the Legion.

As to why he would not want the fragments reforged into a new Frostmourne, that answer is pretty simple: by no means would he want to take the chance of the new Lich King getting ahold of a new Frostmourne, considering how much damage Arthas did with Frostmourne to the Legion both before he was Lich King and during. Better to just keep the damn things somewhere safe so it doesn't bite them in the behind during the next invasion of Azeroth.

I can't imagine Kel'Thuzad is in possession of the fragments. They're in the possession, after all, of someone who DOESN'T want to see them reforged into a new Frostmourne. Kel'Thuzad, would be at the top of the list as someone who wants to see Frostmourne be reborn. Unless otherwise explained, I just can't see Kel having the fragments. Speaking of Kel, they really need to explain what he's up to seeing as how we ALL know he's still around, what with the lack of a Phylactory after the end of Naxxramas Round 2.

Sylvannas stole it and is manipulating him to do her bidding.

Would it surprise anyone if they show up in SoO?

Yes, because Garrosh doesn't qualify as "Very smart".

Not if they're dumb enough to let Wizard Barbie explode all over them without slashing out the artifact that could build a crazy undead army on top of her.

Especially since, you know, Death Knights tend to be pretty decent vs mages.

How would Sylvanas find it? It could be hidden anywhere in the world (or beyond).
